Yes... Light hearted humor is the basis of many good discussions.

Light-hearted humour is fine, when it doesn't include making fun of incidents where many lives are taken almost daily.

Can you imagine an Abbott supporter blowing up the Anzac Bridge one Monday morning and killing thousands of innocent Australians on their way to work, just because he was ousted and then someone making light of it in Indonesia. I know i wouldn't like it and I'm sure you wouldn't either Watto.

Just because we live in the lucky country and don't have to deal with it here, doesn't mean it's fine to joke about it. The people dying overseas are just as human as we are.

In sport that is what happened to Monica Seles, a mad fan of Steffi Graf stabbed Monica Seles in the back to stop her defeating Graf, so I don't recognise the validity of all of Graf's Grand Slam wins.

Only yesterday it came out about the conspiracy to sack Gough Whitlam, when Oz was almost at war, so it can happen to us as well. But keep these topics for a politics thread not THE GAME thread.

So we can no longer say a team bombed a try or that Taylorball 5 hit ups and a bomb should never be spoken again...Really...OK...

There's a difference between that and your comment yesterday and you know it.

But if that helps you sleep at night then yeah sure… OK.

Actually, I dont care.

If it isnt to your liking, you dont have to contribute to the humour... But dont tell people who want to have some fun what they can and cant laugh at.

Geo's comment was tongue in cheek, and that's fine. Nothing wrong with abit of cheeky stirring.

In actual fact though, the war in Lebanon ended 26 years ago. So Geo might have to update his material.

Very good for a country that has endured so many hardships (so have South Africa). If football helps the country unite into something better it is worth the broken bones etc.
